Flower crowns are everywhere! Every picture I see from a music festival, 1/3 of the chicks in the pictures are wearing flower crowns. So inevitably, I thought--I want one! I didn't really plan anything out...just kinda DID IT. I found some flowers at the craft store that caught my fancy, a small bouquet at 50% off brought the price down to four bucks. Once I got the flowers home, I did numerous YouTube searches on DIY flower crowns. There were so many ways to go about making the crown...but I didn't really like the directions I was watching. I wanted to use the whole flower, bud and wire stem.
I brought in some thin wire I owned, and began to wrap the flowers together. I staggered the flowers, bud after bud. I contured the wire to the shape of my head, tied the two ends together. I bent the flowers outward, just so I had the full bud showcased. To cover the wire wrapping I did, I used a green ribbon to cover the wire. In all, I think I like my crown more than any tutorial I watched. Most the tutorials I watched had no regards to the cost of supplies. When I craft, I try to do it effectively and most importantly CHEAPLY!. Just to break down cost: Flowers $4, wire $Gifted, Ribbon $.20 (I got it @ a yard sale). Total $4.20.
